This summer, HSE Extreme Sports Club invites HSE students and staff members to go on trips along Karelian rivers and in the Caucasus mountains.
This tourist route is one of the most picturesque in Karelia. The great Shuya river (the name means ‘deep’ in Karelian) is perfect for summer rafting. This region is rich in berries, mushrooms, and fish. As the organisers say, a journey through this place will inspire you and bring new emotions, goals, hopes and desires. And as a bonus, at the end of the trip the participants will visit an authentic Russian Bathhouse.

Participants of this rafting expedition will take part in a fascinating journey on catamarans and canoes along the river Keret with access to the White Sea. For centuries, monks caught red fish from this river for the Solovetsky monastery. The unique nature of Northern Karelia will surprise even the most experienced traveler. You’ll enjoy a rush of adrenaline, a great mood mood and some interesting experiences.
